Very sad news regarding public transit accidents in late 2017 and early 2018, but they continue to occur.

A truck said not to have stopped at a railway crossing collided with a train in South Africa. Deaths and injuries resulted.
The driver of the truck tried to flee, but was arrested by police, passenger Seipati Moletsane told the privately owned eCNA news site.

Road and railway safety matters need to be make important to anyone with a vehicle licence or vehicle in the country.
